    Amazing new Casio digital (non-G)

    Model AE1200WH-1AV


    I saw this at Sears the other day and now I am wishing I had bought it. It looks really amazing in person, however. It's essentially a basic but durable 100M all digital watch. But it has a larger than usual face design which fills up a large area on the dial. It's hard to describe. You have to see it in person. It's one of the greatest things I've seen from Casio in years, though I tend to like a lot of their nonG watches in general.

    Yeah I noticed one of those on ebay the other day. Caught my eye right away. Love the little world map along with the almost Frogman-style circular element at the top left.

    Does it have an EL light?

    I remember t last time i got suckered into buying a similar one on Amazon.com. It looked great on pics but when i received the watch a few days later, it felt too plasticky, the display was ok but nowhere near as crisp as the stock photo, and the backlight was the very retro (old) LED light in one corner of the watch...the same LED lighting as the X-Large GA series...

    Used it for half a day but ended up giving it to my nephew as a birthday present.

    On my doorstep yesterday evening:


    I have nothing to complain about the crispiness of the LCD.
    The feature set is like the AE-1000.
    What i like is the rather large housing, about the footprint of a DW-5600.

    Not that bad!

    Is the case plastic painted silver, or plastic with a thin stainless steel covering?

    I'm not too keen on Casio's with plastic cases painted silver. Once the paint wears off (it eventually does), the sickly white plastic shows through. If only they'd use gray plastic instead of white!

    Yes, it is painted plastic. But still a nice one from Casio, especially at that price.
